First Confirmed Human West Nile Case In The RGV
EDINBURG — The outbreak of West Nile disease in Texas this summer has become the most active and lethal in the state's history.
What's been called just a matter of time is now finally here.
Health officials say the person from Edinburg was treated and is now home and doing fine. They do want to point out, the elderly and young children are at risk.
The county's working with several cities to ensure heavy populated mosquito areas are taken care of. Edinburg started spraying as soon as they got word of the confirmed case.
Other than the first human case, two horses in the upper Valley have also been confirmed West Nile carriers.
